2020 Bond Program
Bond Program Schedule
In November 2020, North Richland Hills voters overwhelmingly approved $49,875,000 in bonds for street improvements. The bond program will allow the city to reconstruct 27 streets including portions of Glenview, Iron Horse, Bedford-Euless, Chapman, Lariat and others, and will not require an increase in the city’s property tax rate. The reconstruction projects will be phased in over the next 5 to 7 years. Our commitment to voters is to deliver high quality improvements in a timely manner and within budget. Please check back for periodic updates, as schedules are subject to change. Questions may be directed to Public Works at 817-427-6400 or by email.
